This is a list of books I somehow enjoyed. There are only books I have read (and finished) in the last few years. It does not include every book and probably never will, so be careful when judging my character.

Non-fiction is sorted by my rating. Fiction is kept mostly unordered and without rating. I sometimes include a short opinion about given book with quote that caught my interest.
